International Graduate Degree Partnerships

We have agreements with a variety of universities and higher education institutions around the world to offer 3+2, 3.5+1.5, 2.5+1.5, 1+1 and other programs. 

These programs provide partnership students the opportunity to study at Binghamton for a shortened period of time. This ensures that the student gets academic experience in two cultures, which can open up even more opportunities for the students.

GRE scores (Fall 2024 and Spring 2025)

Watson College has made the submission of GRE scores optional for master's applicants for fall 2024 and spring 2025. 

GRE scores are recommended for PhD applicants (please confirm with your respective department) and master's applicants who want to be considered for graduate assistantships (TA, RA) for the 2024-25 academic year.

Once you have submitted your GRE score, it cannot be retroactively waived. If you choose to take the GRE test, please know each program has their own requirements. So we recommend you not submit scores unless you are absolutely sure they meet the program's requirements.


Watson College offers a variety of ways for students to finance their graduate education. Below are some of the most commonly used funding options.

  • Research Assistants: 125-150 positions per year
  • Teaching Assistants: 100-120 positions per year
  • Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR): 15-20 positions per year

All of the above include both tuition and a stipend.

Funding for conferences

An essential part of a graduate education is being able to present, network and observe at conferences. Students at Watson College may receive funding to cover conference travel expenses from Watson College Dean's Suite, academic departments, research institutions (such as WISE or S3IP), Organized Research Centers and other research groups. 


Research programs play an integral role in graduate studies at Watson College. In addition to those receiving University-sponsored teaching/research assistantships, over 100 graduate students are supported by research grants from government agencies and contracts from industrial partners.
